I am thrilled to say that, for the first time ever, OGAE UK will be taking part in one of the UK’s largest Pride Parades at Manchester Pride on Saturday 27th August 2022. This is an opportunity for us to share our love for the contest with the LGBTQ+ community whose support, visibility and representation at the contest we want to celebrate and ALL our members are welcome to take part.
This years Parade theme is ‘March for Peace’ and in the 40th Anniversary year since Nicole won for Germany in the U.K. with ‘A little Peace’, Dana International and Conchita with their historic and iconic wins and Ukraine’s win this year to name but a few moments in the contests history, it seems fitting that we bring the message of Love, Tolerance, Respect and Peace the contest can represent to a wider audience.
Members can join our walking party (complete with mobile Eurovision Disco) in the parade but places are strictly limited to 100. I hope many of you will join us in coming together and celebrating. Members can apply here
and places will be offered on a first come first served basis. Those taking part will be provided with an OGAE UK
branded t-shirt and only members wearing an OGAE UK
t-shirt or an approved Eurovision Themed Outfit will be able to take part in the Parade. If you have any questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
and I look forward to seeing you at the Parade or in the crowd cheering us on.
